Django file storage backend for Google Cloud Storage

Project Description

Based on Google Cloud Storage JSON API.

Written using Google Cloud Python Client library.

Quick start

$ pip install django-gcs


    'bucket': 'bucket-name',
    'http': get_http_credentials


    'bucket': None,
    'project': '',
    'credentials': None,
    'http': None,
    'cache_control': ['no-cache']
  • bucket name of the bucket on google cloud storage.
  • project google project name (not required).
  • credentials oauth2 credentials
  • http httplib2.Http instance or callable that returns httplib2.Http instance
  • cache_control is a list of strings. By default [‘no-cache’]

Note: One of credentials or http should be provided for authentication.


Set storage globally:

DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'django_gcs.GoogleCloudStorage'

Or per model:

from django_gcs import GoogleCloudStorage

class FileModel(models.Model):
    file = models.ImageField(storage=GoogleCloudStorage(bucket='some-bucket'))

Example how to generate HTTP object to make request.

import pickle
import httplib2

def get_http_credentials():
    with open('google/oauth2/credentials/file', 'r') as f:
        credentials = pickle.load(f)
        http_credentials = credentials.authorize(httplib2.Http())
    return http_credentials
